Impact of Pedestrian Traffic on Saturation Rate of Protected Left-Turn at Urban Intersections

  title={Impact of Pedestrian Traffic on Saturation Rate of Protected Left-Turn at Urban Intersections},
  author={Yixin Chen and Yulong He and Xiaoduan Sun},
Heavily congested intersections in metropolitan areas in China are facing unique problems due to high travel demand and a high degree of traffic law violations. Based on a study conducted by the authors of this paper, 93% of left-turn vehicles turning left in these areas were slowed in order to avoid conflict with pedestrians. Intertwined pedestrian and vehicular flows can significantly reduce the capacity of exclusive left-turn lane group through reducing saturation flow rate, which increases… CONTINUE READING
